Hi,

Can anyone give me a comparison between control freak/composer pro and muse? I want it for my canon 550 body..

A friend who has control freak vouches for it.. The distributor in India says composer pro is a new and improved version of control freak and so I should go for it.. I'm told that control freak flexes better than composer pro as CF has the flexible tube bellows (like in muse) which is more tilt compared to the ball joint! I'm confused which to buy!

Regards,
Chocolatemoon

hmmmm I am interested in knowing too. Hope someone can comment more on this. I have the Control Freak and absolutely love it. But I would like to know more about the others.

i own the scout and the composer (not the pro). the pro is the same as the composer with just a bit of functionality refined and tweaked. from reading about the control freak you have to mess with the three adjusters. the composer frees you from that and you can position your sweet spot like you want.as for the muse it has no "stay in place mechanism" so it completely manual as far as placing the sweet spot

Thanks for that.. How is the tilt of a composer compared to that of the control freak? I was told that the tilt is more on CF as it has the tube bellows as apposed to the ball joint in composer or pro..

I have the 3G, the old control freak. It is fiddly but very controllable and depending on what you want to do this is very useful. When my camera is tethered to a tablet or lappie I can move the focus point with pin point focus on macro work. Looking at the site recently the control freak isn't shown, is it still available.
